aaarrrrrgggg!!! this batter was more like a cookie dough than a cake batter. i followed the recipe exactly .i did mix my dry ingredients first, 3 cups of flour etc. and before adding the apples i knew it was going to be too thick.i didnt want to waste the batter but it looked nothing like the video, so i added another egg,another quarter cup oil and about a third cup vanilla yogurt, this loosened it enough to resemble a batter.its baking now but i have no idea what its going to turn out like.was it a typo??i think its way too much flour.let you know what happens...

I have made this cake for a charity bake sale for an organization that my husband belonged to for our community. It was a sell out! Will be making it again for a surprise anniversary cake for my in-laws in 2 weeks time! Thanks Adam! (which is my son name as well! :D)

Hi, I just baked this cake and was delicious! Thank you Adam for sharing this amazing and simple recipe! For the ones that had a dry batter, i mixed all dry ingredients first, then vanilla, egg and oil (which i substituted for 1/4 melted butter and 2/4 apple sauce) in a separate bowl, then added them to dry ingredients and mixed manualy, it was a little bit sticky but moist enough, then added all 4 chopped apples in the top and mixed it. Not sure what went wrong with yours, but mine turned out just perfect after 50 min

Hi Adam, I tried your recipe but it didn't turn out. The batter was not wet,even after about 15 minutes of beating by my hand mixer, the batter was dry & were in the form of beads & they fry out from the bowl to everywhere. I followed your recipe, the only thing I cut down was the sugar because I'm a diabetic. I put in one cup of sugar. The batter was not creamy like it show in the video. The batter was not enough to cover the apple, so I only used 3 1/2 apples. After I put in the chopped apple, you can hardly see any batter. At this point, I can either put the whole thing in the garbage or in the oven, I didn't want to waste the ingredients so I put it in the oven anyway. I took it out 1 hour later, it is very dry but I can still eat the apple, the whole thing is dry like a big cookie. It taste not too sweet which is good, but in no way you can say it is a cake thought. What did I do wrong? Help Margaret
